"Soldiers Speak Out" with Filmmaker Barbara Trent

Veterans Hall - Auditorium - downtown Santa Cruz

$10 donation at the door

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Trent presents Soldiers Speak Out, a 28-minute film and first-hand testament to the reality of the military experience, told entirely in the words of American veterans who have been to war and are now opposing it.

Barbara Trent and David Kasper directed Soldiers Speak Out as a counter-recruitment and organizing tool for veterans, activists, schools and organizations. Veterans voice their thoughts on the deceptive military recruitment tactics, the Bush administration’s erroneous reasons for the necessity of military campaigning in Iraq, and the incredulous combat environment soldiers are exposed to. Not only does it provide a sober view of the war in Iraq, but it also sheds light on the growing and courageous anti-war movement within the military and their families.

A seasoned activist and filmmaker, Barbara Trent won an Oscar in 1993 for the documentary, The Panama Deception, and has both directed and produced other films including Waging Peace, Destination Nicaragua, and Coverup: Behind the Iran-Contra Affair.

Ms. Trent will lead a question and answer session after the screening. A $10 donation requested at the door will benefit distribution of Soldiers Speak Out as well as production costs for Empowerment Project’s newest film tentatively entitled Seizing Power. This event is sponsored by the Empowerment Project and Corrie-Mizo Veterans for Peace, Chapter 11 of Santa Cruz.
